Someone call 911: Habs robbed Tampa.
After being outshot 33-10 after 2 periods, the Montreal Canadiens scored 3 goals in the 3rd period and upseted the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 at the Bell Centre.
The only reason the team was only down by 1 goal after 2 periods was because of the brilliant play of goaltender Christobal Huet who blocked 41 of the 43 shots he faced in the evening.
The 3rd period awakening came from Maxim Lapierre who scored his first NHL goal of his young career tipping a shot from the blue line. Then a bit later Saku Koivu scored a shorthanded goal (the team's league leading 9th SHG of the season) the goal seemed to break Tampa's spirit, then Koivu scored the empty net goal with 45 seconds to go to secure the win.
Next game for Montreal is saturday night, hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins.
